Ageing workforce: prevention and management of occupational diseases like work-related cancers

This event showcases an occupational medicine approach to the ageing workforce focusing on the challenges relating to the prevention and management of occupational diseases in Romania, particularly work-related cancers.

A wide range of speakers, among them EU-OSHA’s director Dr Christa Sedlatschek, discuss work-related cancer prevention, rehabilitation and professional reintegration. They give an update on EU-OSHA’s projects in this area as well as a general overview on the European Pillar of Social Rights.

The event also covers a discussion on the amendments of the Directive 2004/37/EC that protects workers from the risks related to exposure to carcinogens or mutagens at work, and the challenges of its implementation in Romania.

Finally speakers highlight the EU Roadmap on carcinogens and the Covenant signed by six partners, including EU-OSHA. They discuss concrete collaboration means, following an initiative of the Dutch Focal Point who aim to support this roadmap.
